FBReader on Android

Finally, I used the FBReader on an Android tablet. It is far easier to read on it than I had expected. The 7inch screen is a very convenient alternate to the paperback.

I ended the year 2012 by reading two stories - perhaps symbolic for the last day of the year.

Kurt Vonnegut's 2BR02B and Kafka's Metamorphosis.

I had read Metamorphosis 40 years ago and its impact had been so strong and saddening that although I had downloaded the book months ago, I had been hesitating to read it again. Yesterday, I heard Kafka's A Hunger Artist and overcame my hesitation. Rereading it was an amazing experience even on a tablet.
